My love for travel was ignited as soon as I stepped on a plane to England, jetting into the great unknown as a 20-something backpacker with no travel smarts, no illusions and not much money. Every experience, in every country fuelled me with a desire to see more. Do more. Experience more. I started writing about travel in London, and then continued in that travel vein back home in Australia, researching on the Great Outdoors television show, editing travel magazines such as Vacations and Travel Magazine, Escape Magazine and Holidays with Kids magazine. Having developed a love of all things snow, a lot of what I write these days combines my love for travel with my desire to ski the slopes of the world with my family. And let me assure you, there are many great places that offer pure luxe experiences topped off with snow.
Although these days I don’t own a backpack and don’t know where the nearest youth hostel is, the buzz from seeing new places or revisiting old favourites, is just as strong and just as enjoyable as it ever was. From iconic five-star hotels to tracking cheetahs on an African safari, from the brilliant blue and white of a Greek island to a dusty, dirty antique market in China, from strolling Parisian streets to cycling scenic bike tracks in New Zealand, or from skiing powder-topped slopes in Colorado to island hopping on Croatia’s Dalmatian coast, the world really is a remarkable place… and there is so much more to see.
I live in Sydney with my husband and two sons, aged 18 and 15.
